Demon Slayer: Mugen Train may not have reached worldwide theaters as of yet, but this does not stop the first movie in the Demon Slayer series from breaking records at the box office, with the new adventure of Tanjiro and Nezuko making the exceeding total profits from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away!
Originally, when it came to the overall box office, Spirited Away took in more than hundreds of millions of dollars, but Demon Slayer: Mugen Train had such an impressive run that it managed to take in even more despite not reaching all the theaters in the world!
The first film of Demon Slayer serves as a continuation of the first anime season, following Tanjiro and his friends as they try to combat supernatural threats aboard a runaway locomotive.
Fans are eagerly waiting to see when the second season of the TV series will be announced, with Studio Ufotable responsible for both this new film and the first season of the series produced by Koyoharu Gotouge.
For quite some time, Spirited Away, which was the only film from Studio Ghibli to win the “Best Animated Feature” Academy Award, kept a steady lead over this new Ufotable film, but it is obvious that the Demon Slayer Corps’ latest anime adventure has grown to be one of the most successful anime movies ever made!
Twitter user Ario Tengen shared the big news that the Mugen Train shows no signs of stopping any time soon, as the “reign as the box office champion” of Spirited Away has lost to the first film of Demon Slayer as it surpasses over $300 million in income overall.

Studio Ghibli may have been overshadowed here by Demon Slayer, but that is not stopping the legendary animation studio from working diligently on their two upcoming projects that is Earwig And The Witch and How Do You Live.
The animation house will have plenty of chances to try to take back the crown with the now-in-progress amusement park that brings some of Ghibli’s biggest films to life!
Menara Kuantan 188, Latest Iconic Landmark For Pahang’s First City
KUANTAN, March 8 — Menara Kuantan 188, which stands proud on the banks of Sungai Kuantan here, is not only the latest iconic landmark of Pahang’s first city, it also sets the night and weekend moods of Kuantan.
Since the first day of its official opening on Feb 22, the tower, designed with a tapered profile to symbolise the old Malay weapon of the spear and the tip of the spear – like in the coat of arms of Pahang – has been receiving visitors non-stop who want to check out the second tallest lookout tower in Malaysia and also the tallest tower in the East Coast Economic Region (ECER).
While viewers will be impressed by the majestic tower during the day, at night the tower formerly known as Menara Teruntum, illuminates with coloured lights and shines over Kuantan Waterfront.
Visitors taking the glass elevator are treated to magnificent views of Kuantan city until they reach the tower porch, which was built inspired by the leaves and flowers of the Teruntum plant (lumnitzera racemosa), once said to be abundant on the banks of Kuantan River.
Those who like to take pictures will be spoilt to no end as Menara Kuantan 188 offers a 360-degree scenic view of the city, with each angle offering Instagram-worthy shots.
Private sector employee, Lee Chern Lai, 40 said she was lucky to be living in the digital era of smart phones or she would have needed rolls and rolls of films as she and her five friends could not stop recording their memories here.
“Not just pictures, we also recorded videos to be uploaded on Facebook. We hope our other friends could visit this tallest structure in the ECER to experience it themselves.
“I have received many ‘likes’ for my photos and saying that they couldn’t wait to come here. My photos have become a teaser for those who couldn’t be here due to the current no inter-state travel ruling,” she told Bernama here today.
Lee said the location of the tower is also very strategic as there are many other interesting spots within walking distance such as the Kuantan Art Street, Taman Kerang, a row of old shops in Jalan Besar and Kuantan Waterfront that allows visitors to take pictures with the giant sign ‘KUANTAN ‘, which is white during the day before changing its colour at night, thanks to the clever play of lighting.
The more adventurous can try daring activities to be offered at the tower, officially opened by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on Feb 21, such as the skywalk, pole climbing and base jumping with a rope from 104 metres high, the first of its kind here, when it starts operating later.
Menara Kuantan 188, developed by the federal government through the East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) in collaboration with the Pahang government, began construction in August 2017 and obtained a Certificate of Completion and Compliance in November 2020 before being handed over to the state government in December last year.
ECERDC chief executive officer, Baidzawi Che Mat said Menara Kuantan 188 would complement other tourist attractions featuring the rich history, heritage and natural treasures of the Tok Gajah state, especially in the nearby areas, such as Kuantan Waterfront which is poised to become a tourist attraction and result in more economic inflow that will further boost the socio-economic development of the ECER, especially in Pahang.
“The development of Kuantan Waterfront is part of ECERDC’s overall strategy to boost the tourism sector as well as increase investors’ interest in the surrounding areas with various exciting activities that have the potential to attract locals and foreigners. It will increase tourism activities in this area,” he said.
Meanwhile, a native of Kuantan, Badarudin Jaafar, 68, said he never thought a tower with a modern design would stand majestically on the site which was previously a bus station with food stalls where he used to frequent as a civil servant for 32 years.
After seeing the viral photos on social media, he and his family members could not wait to visit the tower. Since it was crowded on the weekend, Badarudin took his family there on a Wednesday afternoon, when most people were at work.
“My dream to enjoy the view from up above finally came true. It is indeed beautiful, yet it gives me a sense of forlorn looking down at what used to be for me. Being up there makes me proud to be a Pahang-born and to have a tower that we can be proud of,” he said.
Badaruddin also hoped that the tower, named after its height, could boost Kuantan’s tourism sector and help the locals, including fishermen, seafood product entrepreneurs, hotel and home stay operators, and small traders in the district.
Kuantan has various attractive tourist destinations such as a happening city, fishing villages such as in Beserah, beaches (Teluk Cempedak, Pantai Sepat, Pantai Balok and Pantai Batu Hitam) as well as natural parks such as Hutan Lipur Sungai Pandan, Pelangi Waterfalls in Sungai Lembing as well as Teruntum Mini Zoo, he said.
“I do hope some parties can come up with boat rides along Kuantan River which has the potential to be a popular tourist activity, as done elsewhere. In fact, it can also help boat operators generate some income,” he added.
Mural artist at Kuantan Art Street, Ahmad Fadzril Abdul Ruzsnan, 27, also welcomed the opening of Menara Kuantan 188 as it meant turning the back alley of a row of shops in Jalan Besar here into their ‘art canvas’ as a tourist attraction, including on weekdays.
Ahmad Fadzril said if before this they could take their time to complete a 200-metre mural, now they worked under the watchful eyes of tourists because many would walk to Kuantan Art Street after visiting Menara Kuantan 188, which is less than 100 metres away.
